An Overview of the FeldenKrais Method
The Feldenkrais Method is a modality used to identify habitual patterns and improve body awareness. This method has proven to be highly effective in alleviating pain, anxiety, and movement difficulties. The method involves the use of movement, touch and imagery as tools for learning new ways of functioning. The heightened awareness that develops through the use of this method leads to improved body image, organization and function.
Unlike the medical model, which prescribes ways to achieve the correct state, the Feldenkrais Method leads the participant to discover his or her own solution. It is based on theoretical knowledge about the nervous system and its capacity to learn. The learning environment is gentle, safe, and creates a process of self-discovery.
